29th June 2018 – Weekly update

Dear Parents and Carers

POW, BANG KAPOW BOOM! What an action pack week we’ve had!

Our adult led focus was superheroes where children made superhero cuffs; children cut, stuck and told us what super power they would have if they were a superhero. They made superhero door hanger decorated with stickers.

In PE it was all about the obstacle course. Children balanced along beams, climbed and jump through hoops and dribbled around cones with a ball.  .

Forest school this week was strawberry picking. We went to Hildred’s pick your own, picked a couple of strawberries, took them to Forest School had a story and prepared our own yummy snack.

In cooking the children made lemonade. Just what you need on a hot day!

In our music afternoon children used a microphone to sing their Favourite song.

  • Help Needed!

On the morning of the party, (Thursday 5th July) we need some helpers to help set up at Storton Lodge and transport equipment from the Pre School to the hall.

We have the hall from 11am and would very much appreciate about six volunteers to help collect and set up the Bouncy Castle and to load up a car to take things from Pre School to Storton Lodge and set up the activities.

We will need some help during the activities and at the end of the party to clear up as we need to be out of the hall by 3pm.

Please email if you are able to offer help. Thank you.


  • Please can you check your child hair for nits and follow NHS guidelines https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/head-lice-and-nits/
